Last year’s All-Round Touring Ski of the Year returns this winter in a leaner package that looks set to broaden its appeal.
Weighing in at 140g less per pair this season, the new ‘freeride-touring’ Dynafit Beast 98W should climb uphill better and feel way more nimble on the descent when negotiating tight couloirs and tricky terrain.
It also comes with a special new snow-shedding topsheet to reduce snow build-up on the top of your skis so there’s no excuses for slow ascents!
A serious quiver-of-one contender for day tours and off-piste adventures, the descent remains the Beast 98 W’s DNA despite its recent weight loss.
With full ABS sidewalls, ash-poplar wood core and a single radius sidecut, the Beast 98 W is still light yet stable, will hold an edge admirably and respond immediately on demand.
If you yearn for peace and quiet in the backcountry then you’ll appreciate the chatter-free ride brought to you by the Beast 98 W’s carbon Ride Tip in the shovel that does a great job of minimising vibration at the front of the ski.
A backcountry beast with no additional burdens – explore further faster and higher aboard the Beast 98W this winter.
